Notes: Ok, take a listen to the two samples & see if you can notice a difference. Can you? I can. Thankfully, for those that have this common SBD, you are listening to the 48 KHZ sourced recording; the Analog version was not released since it is, by default, an inferior product. Digital is much more in your face although if you did not have the 48 KHZ to compare with the 32 KHZ you would, arguably, say that the 32 KHZ sounds hella-good. Which it does. Just not as good as the 48 KHZ source is all. The recordings document just an intense & wonderful performance by Tool. This is a standout among standouts in so far as Tool recordings from this era go. The banter with the audience, the welcome addition of Swamp Song to the set & the overall energy make this a classic recording that deserves it's own spot in your collection. In fact, this is a cornerstone of any collection. Just make sure you listen to it.

 Tim of Rage Against The Machine (to a beat-box to the rhythm of "Slow Ride" as recorded by Foghat):
Slow Ride, take it easy, slow ride, take it easy, slow ride, slow ride, woman you're made for me... ladies & gentlemen I am Jesus Christ!
MJK: This is your brain and this is your brain on drugs. It's like Summer Jam '81 out there. Hi, we're Ted Nugent.
Paul: Wow, there sure are a lot of you here.


Paul: Hey you little hacky-sackers.


Paul: This song is called Sober


MJK: This is a love song, goes out to my boyfriend Theresea.

Prison Sex

MJK: This song is about masturbating. No, really.

Part Of Me
Swamp Song

MJK: You'll have to be patient, Tool will be up next - we're Crystal Pistal - we'll be gone in a minute. So, please be patient. Thank you, good night. Baah, maah, maah, moo, baah.
Paul: This is Opiate

Jerk Off

Paul: Good-bye you've been a very courteous & kind audience.
